"During the summer of 2014, my wife and I decided to search for a vacation home in Ocean City, MD. We used Zillow.com as our primary website to conduct our search. We came across a modern single family home which fit our lifestyle in many ways. The home was listed as a short sale and an agents name appeared under the listing. The agent was Trevor Clark. We called Trevor and left a message. Within 20 minutes, Trevor called back and we requested to write an offer on the house without physically visiting the property. Trevor called us back that evening, wrote the offer and throughout the 70 day short sale process was, polite, knowledgable, friendly and supportive. We met Trevor to tour the house in person. His professional, easy going and helpful personality was very impressive. My wife and I would highly recommend Trevor Clark for any Maryland and Delaware Real Estate service."
